Brief Answer: Anticholesterol medication needed Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Considering the high cholesterol levels I suggest you to consult a internal medicine specialist and be placed on anticholesterol medications at the earliest. The class of the medications needed would be decided by the doctor after examining you. Also restricting dietary fat and spices is very essential measure to control the cholesterol levels in blood. As far as Blood pressure is concerned, there is no need for any medications. Salt restriction alone would help to keep it under control. Wish you good health. regards,
